A novel, switched, photonic delay-line ternary design combined with a wavelength-multiplexed transmit-receive beam-former architecture is proposed. One-dimensional antenna beam steering by use of a single-channel, wavelength-dependent switched photonic delay line in cascade with a multichannel wavelength-independent switched photonic delay line is proposed for hardware-compressed, phased-array antenna control with subarray antenna partitioning. Beam-former architecture extensions to two-dimensional antenna beam steering are described. (C) 1997 Optical Society of America.
